Favorite athletes (excluding MMA fighters)

Recommended Posts

If the only sport you watch is MMA, go ahead and throw some names in, but I'm trying to see who peoples favorite athletes are outside of the sport.

 

At the moment, my favorite person to watch is Marion Barber (not at this EXACT moment).

 

Just watch this clip, and you'll see why he's called "The Barbarian". Mind you, this is only a two yard run, but it's very impressive.

 

 

I also enjoyed watching Michael Jordan when I was a kid. LeBron is currently a beast on the court, and Jerry Rice was an amazing receiver in his time. I also like Troy Palamalu, safety for the Steelers, and Demarcus Ware, linebacker for the Cowboys.

That reminds me, we had a small series on here called "Rexona: Best athelete" or something like that. And the V8 supercar driver faired pretty damn well overall. They keep in pretty good shape those race car drivers, considering they're sitting down for a period of time. They need to be able to sustain the loss of fluids and still be on their game I pressume

Since when do you need to be in any decent physical shape to drive a car? NASCAR drivers arent athletes

 

 

Knowshon Moreno. Dude hurdled a would-be tackler when Georgia played Central Michigan last season. Cant wait to see what he does in the NFL

Precisely' date=' all of the athletes on the team combine into one unit, so all of them are my favorite, because they form into one.[/quote']Do you mean unit as in, one person, or unit as in, one team. Because if they were all combined into one person, that would be a mean mug. One team, they would suck.
